Clint Eastwood is tired of America being overly sensitive.
“[Donald Trump’s] onto something,” he said in the September issue of Esquire, “Because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p—y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”
The 86-year-old actor/director went on to explain that the “p—y generation” is all the people who say, “Oh, you can’t do that, and you can’t do this, and you can’t say that.”
He added, “I guess it’s just the times.”
Though Eastwood hasn’t endorsed anyone for president, he revealed that he will probably vote for Trump because he feels Hillary Clinton is following in President Obama’s footsteps. Although, he does say Trump has “said a lot of dumb things.”
“So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody — the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f–king get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”
As far as change, the “Sully” director says he wants everyone to get to work and be more understanding.
“Kick ass and take names. And this may be my dad talking, but don’t spend what you don’t have. That’s why we’re in the position we are in right now.”
